March Madness with Goodwill

Goodwill March Madness Featuring YOU + Weekly Giveaway Winners

I admit, I’m not much of a basketball fan. Okay. I’m not much of any sports fan unless one of my brothers is playing. Finding amazing deals on clothes I love is my kind of game. Good thing Goodwill of Central Virginia is letting me create my own brand of March Madness this year. The best part? It’s really all about YOU and YOUR STYLE.

STARTING TODAY (3/10), I’m accepting photos of your favorite Goodwill outfit creations. I’ll upload the photos on this post and share them on the Goodwill Instagram, my Instagram, and my Facebook page. Each week, I’ll announce a winner on Wednesday and deliver a $50 gift card to the best outfit!

During the final week, I’ll create a Facebook album of all the outfits and you will vote on the best one to receive a $100 shopping Goodwill gift card.

The Details:

  • I’ll accept submissions by email Friday-Tuesday at Please include your first name and your Instagram handle in your email.
  • You must tag @goodwillcvandhr and @sweetsauceblog in your Instagram posts of the photos you send me. Bonus points if you tag either of us on Facebook!
  • You get more bonus points if you can tell me how much your items cost and why you love them.
  • I will upload the images to this dedicated blog post and share them on both Goodwill and Sweet Sauce social media.
  • Each Wednesday, I will announce a winner who will receive a $50 gift card. I will deliver to them in person on Wednesday if you’re within one hour of Richmond. I might throw in some extra treats when I visit you…
  • During the final week, I will upload all of the photos to a Facebook album and ask for people to “Like” their favorites. Winner will receive a grand prize of $100.
